Reading for the 2nd time. Most recently started December 29, 2019.

It’s tough growing up on a farm and even tougher growing up poor. But John Daily has faith, and he believes one day he will be rich and will be able to help those less fortunate. He even promises a better “life” to the figurines of the Christmas village his father builds every year. John works hard and attains his goals, but will he remember the promises he made or will he get lost along the way?

Christmas Voices is a fast paced and touching story. It is an easy and short read that pulls you in with a few unexpected events. If you enjoy heartwarming tales, this is a perfect story for the holidays.

While I enjoyed this novella, I think it would have had a stronger impact if it were longer as it would allow for more depth to the characters. It is also written in present tense, which while not bad, does take some getting used to.

I look forward to reading more of John Callas’ books.
